How do you stop car windows from scratching?

What are some things I can do to stop my car windows from scratching? For some reason, my windows keep getting scratched up—but I don’t know why!

Answer
Scratched windows can lower visibility and make driving a chore. Luckily, you can repair small window scratches by scrubbing them with non-gel-based toothpaste for 45 seconds and rinsing. Plus, you can use these tips to prevent further scratching:
  • Don’t use your wipers on a dry windshield. This can cause scratching, especially if there is dirt and debris on your windshield.
  • Refill your windshield wiper fluid regularly!
  • Pressure rinse the weather striping at the bottom of your window. This can remove dirt from your mechanism so it won’t scratch your windows when you roll them down.
  • Replace wiper blades when necessary. Watch your wiper blades for signs of wear and tear and replace them when they start to look worn. In general, it’s a good idea to replace wiper blades every six to 12 months.
Hopefully, those tips can help you stop your windows from scratching!
